Kids swim with sharks in Cornwall

Shark

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

With its warm weather and calm seas there's no better place for a swim than Cornwall in south west England.

But maybe you'd think again if you were to see one of these basking sharks when you went for a dip!

Unless you're plankton they are totally harmless and they've been heading to the area for a few years now where you can swim with them.

The world's second biggest fish is on the endangered list and is still under threat around the world.
